Ensuring students are career ready

Monday, February 05, 2018

A recent National Federation of Independent Business poll found that 45 percent of small businesses couldn’t find qualified applicants to fill job openings. Solving this “skills gap” problem has become increasingly important.

That’s why Redwood Falls attorney Orrin Estebo generously donated $1 million to the Redwood Falls High School. The money will be used to establish a career development center that teaches high school students about manufacturing technology and doubles as a center for after-hours training for local manufacturers.

The Orrin S. Estebo Career Development Center will break ground in May and the target date for completion is January 2019. It will include space for agricultural education as well as upgrades for the existing wood and metal shops. Training in other in-demand careers such as health care, business and technology will also take place at the center.
